Nesset prestegard - Nesset Rectory Farm


Nesset Rectory Farm is one of the best-preserved rectory farms in Norway. The farm complex consists of nine preserved buildings. Down at Prestneset there are several clear early-Viking burial mounds and the sites of several crofts. Famous Norwegian author Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson grew up at the Rectory from 1838-53 and in his story "Blakken" he wrote: "One of the most beautiful farms in the country - here my impressions were formed". The big working building from 1902 has been converted into a museum and cultural centre and was awarded the Olavsrosa badge of quality in 2010. The Bjørnson Festival is held in August/September.
